Online hotel management software provider Frontdesk Anywhere through their partnership with Authorize.net now offers Canadian and UK customers the same cutting edge payment gateway solution used by their US based customers.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA. - Streamlining the payment system will provide hotel owners and their guests with a fast, highly efficient and safe system for processing payments. Now online hotel management software firm Frontdesk Anywhere supports seven of the top payment acquirers in Canada and the UK and supports transactions in USD, GBP and the Euro. Additional currency support is also available.
Co-founder of the Online hotel management software Frontdesk Anywhere Joe Kiernan said: "Properties that use a credit card processor within their hotel property management system provide a better experience for their staff and customers. We have already seen that with our clients in the US who have been enjoying the benefits of easy payments for some time.
"Providing a similar experience through Authorize.net to our clients in Canada and the UK has been a priority for us and is a big boost for them."
Most businesses find it difficult and overly expensive to connect a hotel property management system to a credit card payment processing network. Authorize.net was created to make that easy and affordable. The system manages transactions in the same way as a traditional credit card swipe machine. The difference is that Authorize.net uses the internet rather than a phone line to route the transaction. The merchant typically receives payment in two to four days while authorization takes just a moment.
By integrating with Frontdesk Anywhere's system, the hotel website will become more user friendly for the customer and removes the need to twice enter card and transaction details. Mr Kiernan added: "For customers booking a hotel room, Authorize.net offers the added benefit of guaranteed security for their credit card information, by providing built-in security measures to keep your private information private." Authorize.net is PCI-DSS compliant and provides a free fraud prevention tool.
Frontdesk Anywhere also offers the option of Paypal for customers in the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Singapore.
